  1. looks great mate and the photos are fantastic. And a plane with an interesting history. A deck landing accident, damage during gale force winds on the island and repaired bullet holes from small arms fire. And they flew the nuts off it during the war. I have recently become fascinated by the Falklands air war and have a Kinetic Sea Harrier ready to build for a diorama to include an A-4 from the Sanchez/Morgan encounter. But short nosed A-4’s basically dont exist anymore. Thanks Hasegawa! Nice job.
  2. V nice, aint it fun getting those intakes installed!!!!
  3. Fanbloodytastic, very nice. Great pics too.
  4. outstanding, I just found an F6 on Ebay to add to the ever growing stash.... cheers
  5. not much feedback to give. looks great. BUT, where did you get it? I cant find an Airfix lightning anywhere on the web!
  6. Interesting to read. I stumbled across the white Vallejo putty and have used it on small applications several times. I do find it shrinks a lot and turns powdery and sometimes chunks fall out. BUT, it is very easy to use because of the applicator, its as easy as applying glue to a gap in a wing root for example. I find it valuable to fill thin seams followed by a cotton bud swipe to remove the excess and often can get away without any follow up sanding. Is there a better quality putty that comes with a similar applicator? Or can we th
  7. Hi Guys, I managed to mis-read the instructions on my KH 1/48 Jaguar build and installed the truck mounts for the main wheels backwards!!!! Stupido..... I emailed the contact above and received a reply the next day with details of cost and payment tranfer options for the 2 replacement sprues I need. In perfect English too. Cheers and good luck
  8. If I could go back in a time machine I would have chosen the GR version. It has a more accurate nose and more opportunity for interesting weapons fit. Thanks for the kind words folks, I have updated the original post to include the Eduard main wheels.
  9. yep, I noticed it late in the build and figured it could be our little secret. Its amazing how these things are overlooked, been staring at reference pics on the net for weeks and didnt notice until the glue had set!
  10. Well when you get around to starting, this video has a great way of putting the flaps together, I found it very helpful.
  11. Ha, I am asking myself why DID I do it with he flaps down. What a pain in the butt that was.
  12. Its not what I would call an easy build, but its totally do-able. I was rather hesitant also bit jumped in and managed to throw it together. The main area of concern is around the engine intakes but glue and putty tend to solve all problems.
  13. Finally complete. An....ok kit. The dramas around the intakes are real and have been discussed before. Eduard ASRAAM, Eduard cockpit, Eduard main wheels, Xtradecals. Scratchbuilt intake covers from Tamiya tape.
  14. Tato Thanks, Yes I saw this yesterday. I even have a friend who lives nearby and can pick it up but I think I have settled on a Hasegawa kit or nothing. I will go ahead with the diorama build starting with the Harrier and keep an eye on A/B Skyhawk kit market and grab one if it becomes available at more reasonable retail pricing but the almost $200 price range for one on Ebay right now is a little beyond my building skill level. cheers
  15. Wow, I have not seen this detailed break down of different sprues issued. Will take a look, thanks. RMP, an Arbus thing, just coincidence. cheers
